Builds IoX Platform on FlexPod and OpenStack
For its Internet of Experience (IoX) platform to stay one step ahead of customers’ needs, Virdata needed an infrastructure that could harvest massive amounts of data from any type of device or application.
The Virdata IoX platform was initially deployed using Amazon Web Services, but Virdata wanted the flexibility to host its solution on other cloud providers as well. Because Virdata strongly embraces open source technologies and uses several in its application, the company evaluated open source cloud platforms.
OpenStack and FlexPod with NetApp technologies fulfilled the extreme scale and flexibility requirements of Virdata’s cloud-native IoX application. In addition, the modularity of the services enables reuse and further development of Virdata’s overall DevOps vision.
With data at the center of the IoX platform, simplified data management and control across a choice of cloud resources were critical to Virdata’s success. A data fabric enabled by NetApp allows Virdata to maintain seamless data management and full control of data across a blend of resources in the data center, near the cloud, and in the cloud. Integration with NetApp Private Storage for SoftLayer, NetApp Private Storage for AWS, and NetApp Cloud ONTAP further extend the flexibility of the NetApp and OpenStack environment.
Virdata’s platform now combines the power and ingenuity of OpenStack cloud management with proven data integrity and fully developed storage provisioning, data protection, and efficiency from NetApp. This extremely scalable, highly flexible, high-speed infrastructure provides businesses with an all-in-one engine to connect, analyze, and act on information in real time. By connecting large amounts of historical data to real-time data, the IoX platform brings a world of smarter insights and data-driven decision making one step closer to reality.
